Video Transcript for Blue Ox Base-Plate and Receiver Lock Kit Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Blue Ox Base Plate and Receiver Lock Kit with Four Locks. That's going to be part number BX88177. This four lock kit is perfect for securing your entire flat tow set up, all the way from your receiver hitch on your RV to the base plate on your vehicle. All of our locks are keyed alike and they do come with two sets of keys for each lock. Each one of our locks is going to feature a nice rubber dust cover, which is going to keep the dirt, debris, and moisture from getting into the lock cylinder. Our locks have a steel construction and they have a chrome plating, so they'll look nice for a long time. Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how easy it is to use them. We already have one of our 5/8 locks securing our high low adapter to our RV's hitch. Let's show you how we get the other ones installed.

Our kit's going to come with two 5/8 locks and two 1/2 inch locks. The 5/8 locks are going to secure our hitch or our high low adapter and our tow bar to the RV. Our 1/2 inch locks are going to attach our base plate to our tow bar itself. We can start by removing the pinning clip from the tow bar on our high low adapter. Then if we take our lock and the supplied key, we can flip open the dust cover on our lock, turn it a quarter turn, and we can remove the lock. Now all we need to do is push it through our adapter and through the tow bar.

Then we can push the lock all the way in and turn the key, remove it, and push the cover on. Now we can move over to the tow bar. Now if we get ready to hook up our tow bar onto our base plate, we can then take our locks for the 1/2 inch, remove the dust cover and again, quarter turn of the key and we can remove the lock. These are designed to fit perfectly through our tow bar and through the base plate. We can insert our lock and we can take the end, push it all the way on and turn the key, which will lock it into place. Now we can put our dust cover on to keep any dirt and debris and moisture from getting in the lock cylinder.

We can go ahead and do the same thing on the other side. With all the locks in place, now we can hit the road and know that everything is secure. That will finish up our look at the Blue Ox Base Plate and Receiver Lock Kit with Four Locks, part number BX88177.

They locked on easily. They look great and hopefully will perform as advertised also. Thank you very much. 498358


Comments

The locks are great. We use our RV all the time and almost always take our jeep wrangler with us all over the country. Everything is great and I thank you very much for getting back with me. This shows great customer service which is lacking in many organizations today. I really appreciate your feedback.

I purchased the locking pins in lieu of using the stock Clevis Pin/Snap Ring Retention Pin combination to secure the tow bar arms to the vehicle baseplate. Prevents tampering and the posiblity of snap ring retention pin failure. 498689


Comments

Locking pins are great and give you the added security over the conventional snap ring retention pins!

These locks give us peace of mind knowing that someone can't unhook our toad when we are stopped and away from our RV. We know this type of activity can occur because we had it happen to us a few years ago with a snowmobile trailer. 320997


Comments

After using these locks for two seasons, we could not be happier. The locking mechanisms work smoothly and when they are locked you definitely have a peace of mind knowing they will stay that way until you unlock them. Definitely a 5 star product.

As expected and nice quality. Wish the larger one would fit my 2 ½ inch hitch. Too short 528748



- BX88101
by:

Very good quality. Heavy duty. All pins and keys are have TRIMAX stamped on them. Cylindrical key, not flat key. I bought this Blue Ox product to get 3 same-keyed locks. If TRIMAX sells a matched set for less, buy that. CAUTION: I separately bought a Blue Ox 4" long locking pin (also manufactured by TRIMAX) for my Class V hitch. It was NOT packaged with this same-keyed set, but had the same key! This tells me that there are disappointingly few key variations. A thief with a small collection of TRIMAX keys can steal my gear. 194410

I recently lost control of my dinghy while driving up the 35 in San Antonio, due to failure of the lock on one of the arm pins. The lock was acting up for the last couple of months and I should've replaced it then but I didn't. Because of that, my truck was flailing around on the freeway behind my Motorhome, but thank god I was able to land with only a couple broken pieces of my tow bar set up. E-trailer had all of those parts in stock and I was back up 100% the next day. 295177

Our experience with etrailer started with the customer service team. They were excellent in helping us with which products we should purchase for towing a jeep behind our Motorhome. The installation/service department was equally helpful. Everything went smoothly and we are still happy with the towing package one year later. We have also bought other products from etrailer since our first experience. Thank you for the superb service! 606969

As always the products for etrailer.com are quality products. I ordered the above to lock my hitch receiver, tow bar, and utility platform to our coach. etrailer.com was the only place I could find with same key for all three locks. 485316



- BX88101
by:

I purchased these locks to replace my snap ring retainers. I like the fact they are all keyed alike so I can keep a set of keys on the coach and in the car. These locks are a secure way to attach the tow bar to the baseplate and I no longer g-have to make sure I insert the snap ring in the correct position or having the snap ring catch my finger when it accidently closes. 463991

Great vendor to deal with. This is why I have used them several times in the past. 434482



- BX88101
by:

These pins work good and don't rust. I have used these and left them in my hitch outside for over a year now. I have had other locking pins and the key lock on them has always corroded in a matter of a few months. The only issue that I have had with them is the rubber retainer comes off the lock too easily. When opening the rubber cap, it is easy to pull the whole thing off and then you have to put it back on. 425120



- BX88101
by:

I bought this lock kit to go with my blue ox tow bar. Well worth the peace of mind both for storage and when towing. The locks are well made and the prices on etrailer were very reasonable. 418457

by:

Second time I've ordered from etrailer.com and was completely satisfied. The product description was exactly like what I received and the free shipping was very fast. I definately will order from etrailer again. Etrailer has the best prices and sell quality items. The three piece lock set with one key is going to make it so much easier while attaching my vehicle to the motorhome. Some reviewers have complained about these locks and the rubber dust cap but no matter what some people buy they have to complain for some reason. These locks work great and etrailer deserves a five star rating. 412795

Great product. If you are using a tow bar, this is a must have item. Don't wait for a vandal to strike while you are temporarily away from your rig. Also adds peace of mind while under way, no possible way for your pins to come out. As always, etrailer delivers on time and as promised. 159818



- BX88101
by:

These are replacements of locks that I have had for many years. The only thing that I note is that this lock kit uses barrel keys and must be turned to lock. I preferred my previous set in which you simply pushed the lock onto the pin to lock it. 158659

I needed new tow pins for my Blue Ox tow bar. I shopped on line and contacted my dealer. But, etrailer.com had the best price by far. My order was filled promptly and arrived in just a few days. In fact, it arrived earlier that projected. This is my second order with etrailer.com, but it won't be my last if I ever need something they can supply. Good prices and good customer service are hard to beat. 157311

by:

Just what I was looking for. The etrailer web site has more and better information than other sites and that made buying easier. Next time, I'll go directly to etrailer.com and not waste time. The price was also much better at etrailer, and shipping was free and they upgraded my order to 2 day shipping. Probably the best buying experience I've had in a long time. You can buy with confidence here. 149907

  • Recommended Flat Towing Setup For Manual Transmission 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback With 6 Speed Turbo
  • I checked the owners manual online and towing behind a motorhome is considered improper towing and can damage the transmission if you have a model with the CVT (continuously variable transmission). If you get the six speed manual transmission with turbo, it can be flat towed. If you choose this vehicle, I recommend the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # BX2265. You should use the Loctite Threadlocker # LT37420 for this installation. For a tow bar, I recommend the Blue Ox...

  • What Do I Need To Flat Tow A 2017 Buick Envision
  • Yes, the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Switch part # RM76512 will work on your 2017 Buick Envision and is also recommended to be used while flat towing this vehicle. In order to flat tow your vehicle with 4 wheels down, you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, supplemental braking system, wiring harness, and possible high-low adapter. I will attach my recommendation for each of these components below. For a base plate kit designed to fit your vehicle, I recommend the...

I recommend using locks like # BX88101 or # BX88177 if you use a high-low adapter to secure your investment. To complete your flat towing setup, I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 which will give you a clean connection and also utilize your vehicle wiring while protecting it.

The D-ring mounts are for Off-Road Bumpers, so if you have an aftermarket bumper you will want # RM-035 For 3/4 inch thick D-ring Bumper Mounts or # RM-035-1 for 1 inch thick D-ring Bumper mounts.

  • Recommended Base Plate to Tow Bar Locking Pin Keyed Alike

This will give you the tow bar locking pins and the third pin that can be used to lock your tow bar to your receiver. They are all keyed alike. Unfortunately we don't have any two pin kits that are keyed alike for tow bar pins. The # BX8859 does not give the option to be keyed alike.

Another option, especially if you are using a high-low adapter is to use the Blue Ox Base-Plate and Receiver Lock Kit - Qty 4 # BX88177 to get the keyed alike locks.

Either of these options will be easy to disconnect by pulling the pins. You may want to consider the Blue Ox Base-Plate and Receiver Lock Kit - Qty 3 # BX88101 for keyed alike security.
